Know any good freelance writers? 📝


(Marie Fieldhouse) #23

Hi Beatrice, my brother, James York, has recommended me :slight_smile: I would love to talk to you about your copywriting project. I’m just coming back to writing (having been on a career break since having my children!) and think I would be a great fit to work with you on developing the content on Monzo.

I can create engaging and easily digested articles for your How Money Works section. I have written on a variety of legal and financial topics while working in-house at accountancy and law firms and make potentially complex or technical subjects straightforward to understand - with no jargon!

I have also written a software user manual for a large police force, plus numerous training guides for the companies I have worked at previously. I can help you break down the different features of Monzo into simple ‘how to’ guides that your customers will be able to use to make the most of their accounts with you. For example, I thought that your intro to IFTTT and applets in the guide on automation would make a great topic to expand on with a guide of its own.

Please let me know if you have any questions about my work. I look forward to hearing from you!

Best wishes,
Marie Fieldhouse

P.S. you can find out a bit more about me and the copywriting services I provide on my website: http://www.wordhouse.co.uk

P.P.S. I wasn’t able to DM you for some reason, so forgive the long reply!!

Hey :wave:, I distil complex technical topics into easy to read blog posts here: https://medium.com/@brandonskerritt

I kind of write about personal finance in the sense that I reply to the finance / fintech threads on here :monzo: (just click on my profile) and I write financial monthly roundups for myself on my blog (not going to link here as it’s too personal for me to link).

Not a copywriter or a professional journalist, just a student that enjoys learning about complex topics enough to write clear, easy to understand blog posts on them :grin: :sparkles:

Hi Bea,

I work as a freelance writer, designer and digital marketer for various tech startups. My writing career started in art journalism, but has since expanded to writing for industries such as technology, finance and property. I have written a wide range of content including articles, blogposts, press releases, talks, social media posts and ads, email marketing, website and product copy, tone of voice guidelines, privacy policies and terms & conditions. I’d love to be considered as a freelance writer for Monzo.

You can find some examples of my writing in my clippings portfolio linked below. This includes simple explanations of complex topics such as the blog series ‘Get Ready For GDPR’ I wrote earlier this year for an app called Okappy and another blog series on ‘Money Saving Hacks’ for FirstHomeCoach.

Please pay a quick visit to my website, http://www.rowanmartincopywriting.com , where you will find work examples, client testimonials and full details of my services and rates.

I am adept at moderating my tone of voice and language to suit the sector for which I’m writing. These are capable and experienced hands, so I hope you’ll consider picking me out of the crowd!

(Emma Victoria Stokes) #43

Hey Bea,

I’m a freelance Social Media Manager & Copywriter and I use MONZO religiously now to organise my finances. It’s a hard slog doing your own taxes / keeping money in separate pots but Monzo seems to have been the answer to a lot of my problems.

I’d love to get involved and write some articles. I’m also a blogger and have written a few posts about savings, so I’d love the chance to be a part of the Monzo blogging writing community.

Please feel free to get in touch with me at: HELLO@EMMAVICTORIADIGITAL.COM.
